Arrest made after investigation into unregulated vapes

Friday, January 26, 2024

Earlier this week we warned parents of the dangers of unregulated vapes after several young people were taken ill in Morecambe and Lancaster.

In recent weeks, Lancashire Police received reports of five teenagers having fallen ill and requiring hospital treatment.

To update you, a 16-year-old boy was arrested in Morecambe yesterday (25th January) on suspicion of supplying a controlled drug.

He has since been released under investigation.

We continue to urge parents to be vigilant and will be working with local schools and partners.
